Clips from my chest workout today 💀
Standing cable flies decline 2x10 then did standard flies 2 x10 , then standing cable flies incline 2x10👐🏽 .
I used the plate push as a finisher to blast the muscle and really feel a lactic acid burn 🔥 .
Check out ma story for the full workout 👯♀️
Ps. Back from hol now so that means back to the gym routine, focussing hard on staying lean but keeping my food choices relaxed for the moment until I go back to uni. I always find I eat so much cleaner at uni cos I just want something I can bang in the oven to save time ie. salmon and veg ... therefore I’m making the most of the meals out and the home cooking for the last few days 😍
Yummiest breakfast EVER 🍫🍌
HIIT‼️‼️ my fave form of cardio, takes so much less time and really makes you out of breathe and gets your heart going!

It’s been a week since I had a workout, but honestly I’m just proud of myself for not beating myself up about getting to the gym and trying to maintain this page. I had a wonderful time at Sydney and ate my way through the city without having to worry about “ruining” my body.
Coming back from that trip made me realise so much about a few aspects in my life. So currently I am trying to figure and work out the funk I am in and slowly ease myself into new changes. I’m a person who hates change & would often get anxious about shifts in life. But the older I’ve gotten, it’s generally a good thing. It could even be the best thing.
Take it step by step and all will fall into place.
Sending beautiful and good vibes to all! 💖
Since I started my gap year I’ve grown so much in learning how to be the best version of myself.
There’s only one you.
Find your passions, follow what you believe in and stop thinking you have to be exactly like your biggest idols to be successful.
You don’t have to be someone else to BE SOMEBODY.
All these qualities you see and envy in the people you look up to, you already have within yourself, you just don’t realise because you’re too busy trying to be someone else.
Don’t waste your life trying to be like someone else, don’t waste your time trying to impress everyone but yourself.
Work with what you have and build the best version of yourself, create your own individuality for others to become inspired by.
You only have one life, one body, one soul, treasure that.
Trying to work on those baby triceps ✨
Fitting in the second workout of the week and it was PAIN FREE 🤗 taking all of the positives RN. The routine doesn’t have to always be hard, just enough to challenge yourself and test your own limits!!!
Only compare yourself to you 💕
For somebody that’s been serious about fitness for at *least* six or so years now, you’d think I would’ve tried #pilates

L’arrivé n’est pas encore là....
Mais elle se rapproche chaque fois !! 🔥🔥
🔥👏🏼 L'exercice et la nutrition ne change pas seulement ton corps ✨ Il change aussi ton esprit, ton attitude et ton humeur 💫💕🙏🏻 #alhive
Welcome to my new gymmmm!!
I've also created a few new goals to stick by now that I've come to uni and I'm making my own meals: no.1= try and cut down on carbs. No.2= make more homemade food and learn to cook properly. No.3= still enjoy the odd takeaway or chocolate bar without feeling any guilt, because I need to still be enjoying myself and those foods make me happy and if I'm working hard in the gym, why shouldn't I treat myself 😊
Alhive débarque bientôt sur votre mobile📱
Qui est prêt à prendre une dose d’énergie ?! ⚡️
TicTacTicTac... ⏱ #alhive
It's important to be your own hero, to push yourself to reach for the sky and never settle for ordinary.
Here are a couple of clips from tonights session if you fancy giving it a go! It’s a sweaty one🍑
4x8 Constant tension squats (stop before the ugly butt squeeze, I’ve seen this around a lot recently and wanted to give it a go, I’ll probably start alternating between both👌🏼)
4x8 each leg resistance band (courtesy of @gracefituk
) glute kickbacks
4x8 squat jumps
(Perform 1 set of each of the above moves with no rest inbetween and then have a rest, repeat 4 times👏🏼)
I started with a 20 minute stairmaster warm up (I usually do 5-10mins) and glute activation🍑 Then I finished with a booty/leg burner which I also filmed so I’ll post that sometime soon💪🏼
If you give this session a go make sure to let me know (that rhymed hehe) 🙌🏼✨
I’m not a qualified pt, these are just the session I do myself, and I’m not claiming to have perfect knowledge or perfect technique☺️
Happy hump day♥️

Oh my God, the bend and snap, works everytiiiime! 💄
Okay MAYBE be careful on the snap, but it does work! As I am not allowed to bend my knees too much, I am being forced out of my comfort zone a LOT lately. I'm more of a conventional deadlift kind of gal, the Romanians have never really been my style and I'm hesitant to push myself in them for fear of getting #injured
🤕 Changing up your variations keeps your body guessing so it has to constantly adapt, and it can be so easy to just do what we're used to. Not making progress lately? That may be why. Its time to leave that comfort zone and try some new variations!
Its already hump day, but that doesn't mean its too late to leave your comfort zone! What are you going to try this week? 🔥

Since going vegan, I have hardly ever found myself craving animal products. But lately, I have really just wanted a mountain of #nutella
But as per always, there is a 100% better for you and equally delicious substitute available 😋 Particularly if its this home made vegan Not-ella! Simple af too, all you need is:
• 3 cups hazelnuts (Optional - skins removed if you want a smoother texture)
• 2 Tbsp Carob powder (cacao or cocoa will do too!)
• 1-2 Tbsp Agave Syrup (Maple syrup or Rice Malt is great!)
• pinch of salt
Then all you do is lightly toast then really process your hazelnuts until you have a nut butter consistency and STIR in the carob, agave and salt! Give it a taste, and adjust carob and sweetener to your taste (I like more Carob and less agave) 💖
🔢Lets talk NUMBERS 🔢
I was always a math kind of gal, numbers just made a lot of sense. Lately (for years even) I've been stuck obsessing over the numbers in every aspect of my life. Whether its the grades I'm getting, how much I weigh, how many calories I eat/burn, the number of likes on a post, how many steps I take in a day, or how much I can 'lift'. For me it is such an easy way to measure, and so I go straight to it when I'm stressed. I count and it calms me down, but it can also be dangerous. When you start obsessing over the scale and the amount of food you eat you change your relationship with food and your body.
While it is a great mechanism for losing weight - BE CAREFUL! Take a step back sometimes, don't count your calories, take off your fitness tracker, and just be. Who decides what they all mean anyway?
I need this reminder every semester. I struggle every day trying not to count, I'm an all or nothing human. So now I need YOUR advice. ⬇️How do you step back from the numbers? ⬇️

Workouts to Avoid If You Are Trying to Lose Weight
Are you committed to losing weight in the healthiest way possible? If so, then you probably know high intensity workouts are the way to a slim and toned body.
Focus on the Total Body Workout (Not Specifically Targeted Exercises)
If you want to lose more than 20 pounds, it doesn’t do you much good to do exercises that target a smaller muscle group. Exercises such as the flat bench press, bicep curls, or even calf raises aren’t the best use of your time—as they don’t maximize the fat blasting workout you could have with exercises that target larger muscle groups at once. Instead, shoot for a workout like the rowing machine, which will target your back, chest, shoulders, biceps and core all at once.
Or, go for an ‘old school’ workout that includes jumping jacks, squats, jump rope, push-ups and lunges. Using your body weight as resistance is an excellent way to work your entire body out (no gym equipment needed!) Sure, you’ll feel the burn—but you’ll see the benefit within weeks of a total body workout!
▪️Don’t Participate in the ‘Zombie Workout’
▪️Manage Your Cardio Amount (Don’t Overdo It)
If you have weight to lose, remember that that weight is putting strain on your joints—so take it easy, and start with a lower intensity cardio plan. All movement counts, so work your way up sensibly!
